transept and apse

Courtesy internet caretaker extraordinaire Joanne Casey comes this featured property in Lincolnshire, which is family home nested within a converted gothic church. Many of the original fixtures have been kept intact, including gloriously beamed ceilings, the choir and the altar, plus a few gravestones in the churchyard garden. The interior is really fantastically done and is a testament to the creative use of space, and although I am happy that the building and its history (after a fashion) are being preserved, I don’t know how I’d feel about living on formerly consecrated grounds. What do you think?
